September 8 - 14, 2016

Celebrate our wonderful city with Greater Moorhead Days! Join us for a week packed full of fun and exciting events for everyone!

*Greater Moorhead Days Parade: Given the many detours and traffic concerns associated with road and sidewalk construction this year, the 2016 Greater Moorhead Days Parade has unfortunately been cancelled. The parade will be back next year, better than ever!
